Grandma (2015)

Director: Paul Weitz. Cast: Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden, John Cho, Elizabeth Peña, Sam Elliott. 89 min. Rated R. Comedy/Drama.

Disgruntled single grandmother is approached by teenage granddaughter for funds to perform an abortion. The movie was advertised as Lily Tomlin's "tour-de-force", but the only tour-de-force I saw was an anti-social trying to get her way by pissing everyone off. The knockout performance comes from Marcia Gay Harden, who in a short scene as the grandma's daughter/teenager's mom, entirely steals the show. An awards-aimed film that got almost no awards.
